Barclays Center's Calvin Klein Courtside Club Becoming The Place To Be In Brooklyn
Published April 10, 2013
CHRISTENING THE ICE: The Islanders yesterday announced that they will play a preseason game at Barclays Center on Sept. 21 ahead of their planned move to the arena in '15. The contest against the Devils will mark the first NHL game played in Brooklyn (Islanders). In N.Y., Brett Cyrgalis noted the same matchup "was supposed to take place this past preseason but that was cancelled" due to the lockout. There remain "some alterations to be done" at Barclays Center "before a hockey team can move in full time" (NYPOST.com, 4/9). Also in N.Y., Jeff Klein noted tickets for the game "will be available for" Islanders season-ticket holders and some Nets season-ticket holders starting tomorrow. Ticket sales "to the general public begin April 17" (NYTIMES.com, 4/9).
